It’s introducing the Georgian age, to the digital age

It's being trusted to deliver. And it’s the satisfaction of presenting, and promoting a uniquely important archive collection. This is what makes working for The Royal Household so different.

In quality and diversity, The Royal Collection is breath-taking. Working on the unique Georgian Papers Programme as part of our Library and Archives team, your challenge will be to digitise material stored within the Royal Archives for the Georgian Papers Programme, thereby producing valuable content for a high profile public access portal.

You'll capture and produce high quality images of archive items, before transferring them to catalogue databases for permanent storage.

You’ll analyse every digital image for quality and metadata compliance, carrying out vital quality assurance checks.

The deadlines will challenge you, but you'll be driven by the experience you'll gain working with this fascinating archive collection.

In everything you do, you will aim to engage a growing audience with an expanding collection of digital records.

You'll already have experience of capturing and producing high quality digital images, as well as some expertise in digital imaging software, making you a real asset to our team.

Ideally, you'll also have experience of working with archival material and excellent knowledge of workflows in a digital environment.

Good organisational and planning skills are essential, as you'll be meeting regular project deadlines.

Self-motivated with a meticulous eye for detail, you're confident creating and interpreting metadata, meeting all current metadata standards.

With excellent communication skills, you'll be able to work both independently and in a small team to achieve consistently high standards.

Above all, you’re eager to immerse yourself in the unique learning opportunities that the collection presents.

This is your opportunity to use your digital imaging skills to deliver the exceptional.

In return you will be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility - to increase contributions or draw down as salary), with training and development, as well as a range of recreational facilities.
